A local gaming forum has a member who is selling a T7700 for $260! Thats not bad at all. But My question is, will it work in my E1705? I think the fastest cpu that will work is the 2.33ghz one, right? Will the T7700 fit in the slot and simply underclock to the other speed? or will it not work at all>?
So I have a 3 year old Vostro 1500 with T5470 (1.6Ghz), and it's starting to show its age... I'm thinking of adding some extra life to it and doing a CPU upgrade to the best possible CPU. So I'm just wondering what's the fastest CPU the Vostro 1500 will still support? Is it the T9300, or something higher?
i was looking to upgrade my cpu on the laptop. I am currently running T7500 2.2GHz core 2 duo and i think its running a bit slow so i wanted to upgeade it. Am i able to add any of the T/P series Intel Core 2 Duo Processors on this laptop? ok i found out by doing some reasearch that my MB is Quanta model 30CB 79.26 Chipset PM965 Rev. C0 is any one in laptop world familiar with this? i'm going nuts over here for 2 hours trying to find out what cpu's this dumb motherboard supports. someone? any1 can help me out here? btw i tried calling HP and its just retarded. they want me to buy a new plan or some waranty crap thing so they can help me out with phone support since my warranty is expired. they won't even answer any of my question until i pay them..... i want to know if i am able to add ANY 65nm and some 45nm, and to see if this laptop will take the quad core mobile processor Q9000 with its 45nm and its Bus Speed of 1066Mhz. i would love to buy a Q9000 2.0Ghz and put it in place of the T7500. that would be some AWESOME improvement over the current cpu. and then i might be able to play some of my online racing games with NO lag
Is the quad raid 0 512Gb on the Z the fastest setup in the laptop/mobile world?
How does it compare to the 512GB SSD setup on the new MBP or even the Alienware 15x and 17x?
I asked this on the Alienware forum; but nobody truly knows much other than that the alienware would demolish the Z and that the ssd on the Z is a dual setup like the mbp and alienware. I know its a quad setup, but is it the fastest option availble?
I was under the impression tht it was, and it would be extraordinary on such a tiny laptop.
My acer 6935g has a T6600 2.2ghz processor at the moment which has a 800mhz fsb.
My question is this: what is the fastest processor that i can use? Can i upgrade to a 1066 fsb processor ? Or do i have to stick to the 800 fsb range of processors..?
My ram is curently 3gb of ddr3 pc3-8500 which i am upgrading to 4gb. So as i understand it, my ram will work at the faster fsb if i should be able to upgrade to the faster fsb range of cpu's, or have i got this wrong?
What would be the effect (if any) of a faster 1066 fsb cpu on the battery life, i mean would there be a noticable reduction ie 30 minutes or more...?
i don't have a clear conclussion about the max ram that E1705 support. Some guys says that support 4GB and xp reads 3.5, but others says that support 2GB. and some users on this forum, in their signs, says 2GB of ram on E1705 laptops.
i wanna do a upgrade of ram , because i have 1GB. but i don't know if I will be able to put 3GB on my laptop..
I was considering selling my E1705 before but after some research and input from others I came to the conclusion that I should just stick my my E1705 because the resale value is much lower than I expected (I wanted to sell my machine, get a small laptop for mobility and build a desktop).
So now I want to just upgrade my laptop to the max and maybe just get a shitty eee pc as my 2nd laptop to carry around everywhere.
Where is room to upgrade, things I am considering so far to up is a T7600 CPU, 4GB 667mhz RAM, 200gb 7200rpm HD, GTX is a maybe... don't know how much difference there will be. How should I change my choices and what else can I upgrade.

I've been having a problem with my computer for the past 3 days, even when i am not doing anything, no programs running or anything the both cores indicate 100% the computer gets extremly slow. I've already formated the computer and it did it again with nothing but windows installed on it.
I tought it was getting too hot or something but the temp is 47 c AVG. i ran Dell diagnostic tool and everything Passed.
I was readin a review on cnet last week, and there was an hp and a toshiba laptop with the same stats.. anyway, they did tests and cnet says that the quality of the RAM was probably why the test results were so diffrent.
Purchased a e1705 in June of 2006. Started having the NMI parity errors within a month.
Contact Dell and they swapped out memory. The problem seemed to be better, but still linger for a while with the NMI errors. Installed Vista on the system and cant remember ever having an error. Then I installed Counter-strike, and started getting the error back. Recontacted Dell and they replaced the motherboard and ram. That hosed my vista install where printing, control panel, stopped working. Backed up my data and reinstalled after formating the drive Windows XP using the Dell disks I received. Now the system isnted on for more than 5-15 minutes without an NMI error.
Oh, now dell is wanting me to send my laptop to a depot where they can make sure its fixed. I will now be without any laptop, working or not for around 2 weeks.
I have the 4 year extended warranty with accident protection.
So I bought an Inspiron 9400 bout two years ago, its a piece of shi*t ... i've had i dunno about 6 or 7 service calls now .... ANYWAYS
When I went to purchase a laptop I was looking at both the XPS and the laptop I decided on (E1705), and the only thing I noticed that was different was that the XPS was substantially more expensive, and had a different look ...
Not to insult anyone's taste or anything, but the look of the XPS is tacky as hell lol ... I mean, its inundated with the word XPS everywhere (even on the touchpad ... ?), i've never seen one in person ... maybe someone can explain to me haha
Anyways, the purpose of this post isn't about the aesthetic differences between the two series of laptops lol. A friend of mine who is in the market to purchase a laptop has asked me what the differences were ... and I couldnt answer him (hence why i'm posting)
What i'm asking then is, other then its shell, assuming the CPU, GPU, RAM, display are identical what is it that makes the XPS better and at a much higher price? Is the motherboard better, or are XPSes less prone to random breaking? If anyone can differentiate the two for me i'd appreciate it, so I can help my friend out before he drops $2.5k on a laptop
An hour ago, I accidentally dropped my Inspiron E1705. The notebook fell from 3ft high and hit the ground on its bottom side (the same position you use the laptop). I tried to turn it on to see if it worked and here's what I found:
The notebook turns on and the battery charges
The hard drive led is blinking like booting
The keyboard works
Screen is blank, no video at all, I tried using an external monitor and got the same result
Well my E1705 was sent in for warranty, and Dell informed me a few weeks ago I would be recieving a replacement system instead of them fixing mine. I guess they were out of stock of parts needed to fix my trusty E1705....
